Classic rock is not, strictly speaking, a musical genre, but rather a radio format that features old-school rock songs. There is no set definition of "classic rock," with just about everybody having their own personal criteria. The unwritten definition used by the website ultimateclassicrock.com (and many people) generally seems to be any music created by a non-[[AlternativeRock alternative]] [[note]] excluding NewWaveMusic, PunkRock, and PostPunk, if you even consider these genres to be alternative [[/note]] rock band/artist who was at the peak of their/his/her career between the [[RockAndRoll rockabilly/rock and roll]] (using the strictest definition of the latter term) and the {{Grunge}}[=/=]AlternativeRock eras (basically, rock from the mid-ish-early-ish [[TheSixties '60s]] to the very early [[TheNineties '90s]]). That being said, classic rock radio stations have started playing more recent music, including grunge and alternative artists, diversifying their playlists. While the rock and roll/rockabilly artists of the [[TheFifties '50s]] and early [[TheSixties '60s]] are indeed classic and rock, they tend to not be considered "classic rock," since they virtually never seem to get played on stations of that radio format.

Classic rock radio stations are common in the United States and Sirius XM Radio features several classic rock-oriented stations, including: The Bridge (classic soft rock), Classic Rewind (late [[TheSeventies '70s]] and [[TheEighties '80s]] classic rock), Classic Vinyl ([[TheSixties '60s]] and early [[TheSeventies '70s]] classic rock), Deep Tracks (classic rock deep cuts), 1st Wave (classic NewWaveMusic, PunkRock, and PostPunk), Hair Nation (HairMetal), and Ozzy's Boneyard (classic HardRock and HeavyMetal).

Classic rock is not, strictly speaking, a musical genre, but rather a radio format that features old-school rock songs. There is no set definition of "classic rock," with just about everybody having their own personal criteria. The unwritten definition used by the website ultimateclassicrock.com (and many people) generally seems to be any music created by a non-[[{{Alternative Rock}} alternative]] [[note]] excluding [[{{New Wave Music}} New Wave]], [[{{Punk Rock}} punk rock]], and [[{{Post Punk}} post-punk]], if you even consider these genres to be alternative [[/note]] rock band/artist who was at the peak of their/his/her career between the [[{{Rock and Roll}} rockabilly/rock and roll]] (using the strictest definition of the latter term) and the [[{{Grunge}} grunge]]/[[{{Alternative Rock}} alternative rock]] eras (basically, rock from the mid-ish-early-ish [[{{The Sixties}} '60s]] to the very early [[{{The Nineties}} '90s]]). That being said, classic rock radio stations have started playing more recent music, including grunge and alternative artists, diversifying their playlists. While the rock and roll/rockabilly artists of the [[{{The Fifties}} '50s]] and early [[{{The Sixties}} '60s]] are indeed classic and rock, they tend to not be considered "classic rock," since they virtually never seem to get played on stations of that radio format.

Classic rock radio stations are common in the United States and Sirius XM Radio features several classic rock-oriented stations, including: The Bridge (classic soft rock), Classic Rewind (late [[{{The Seventies}} '70s]] and [[{{The Eighties}} '80s]] classic rock), Classic Vinyl ([[{{The Sixties}} '60s]] and early [[{{The Seventies}} '70s]] classic rock), Deep Tracks (classic rock deep cuts), 1st Wave (classic [[{{New Wave Music}} New Wave]], [[{{Punk Rock}} punk rock]], and [[{{Post Punk}} post-punk]]), Hair Nation ([[{{Hair Metal}} hair bands]]), and Ozzy's Boneyard (classic [[{{Hard Rock}} hard rock]] and [[{{Heavy Metal}} heavy metal]]).

Classic rock is not, strictly speaking, a musical genre, but rather a radio format that features old-school rock songs. There is no set definition of "classic rock," with just about everybody having their own personal criteria. The unwritten definition used by the website ultimateclassicrock.com (and many people) generally seems to be any music created by a non-[[{{Alternative Rock}} alternative]] [[note]] excluding [[{{New Wave Music}} New Wave]], [[{{Punk Rock}} punk rock]], and [[{{Post Punk}} post-punk]], if you even consider these genres to be alternative [[/note]] rock band/artist who was at the peak of their/his/her career between the [[{{Rock and Roll}} rockabilly/rock and roll]] (using the strictest definition of the latter term) and the [[{{Grunge}} grunge]]/[[{{Alternative Rock}} alternative rock]] eras (basically, rock from the mid-ish-early-ish [[{{The Sixties}} '60s]] to the very early [[{{The Nineties}} '90s]]). That being said, classic rock radio stations have started playing more recent music, including grunge and alternative artists, diversifying their playlists. While the rock and roll/rockabilly artists of the [[{{The Fifties}} '50s]] and early [[{{The Sixties}} '60s]] are indeed classic and rock, they tend to not be considered "classic rock," since they virtually never seem to get played on stations of that radio format.

Classic rock radio stations are common in the United States and Sirius XM Radio features several classic rock-oriented stations, including: The Bridge (classic soft rock), Classic Rewind (late [[{{The Seventies}} '70s]] and [[{{The Eighties}} '80s]] classic rock), Classic Vinyl ([[{{The Sixties}} '60s]] and early [[{{The Seventies}} '70s]] classic rock), Deep Tracks (classic rock deep cuts), 1st Wave (classic [[{{New Wave Music}} New Wave]], [[{{Punk Rock}} punk rock]], and [[{{Post Punk}} post-punk]]), Hair Nation ([[{{Hair Metal}} hair bands]]), and Ozzy's Boneyard (classic [[{{Hard Rock}} hard rock]] and [[{{Heavy Metal}} heavy metal]]).

There are also several syndicated radio programs that play classic rock bands and artists, including ''The House of Hair with Dee Snider'', ''Nights with Alice Cooper'', ''The Classics with Steve Downes'', and ''Off the Record with Joe Benson''.
